for women everywhere







for women everywhere …




they said she was opinionated.



they castigated her for not following the norm.



they dismissed her for being “loud-mouthed”.



they spoke disparagingly of her for flouting cultural, religious, sectarian narrow-minded claptrap.



they damned her for unclipping her wings, as she soared free into the open skies.



she is you.



and may you always be you …

a solitary tear of dew,


falls.



caressed by the lilting of rustling leaves,


enveloping dawn,


to gentle birdcalls …
